Here’s Christian Caple’s wrap-up of the call.
Howie Stalwick has this notebook which leads with the recent success of Brock Motum.
Lorenzo Romar called Motum “the most improved player in the conference.”
But Abe Lodwick said that Motum was always good, he just got more touches … From Howie’s story …
Lodwick balks, however, when people suggest that Motum is the most improved player in the Pacific-12 Conference.
“It’s not like he’s gotten tons better,” Lodwick insists. “He’s just getting a lot of opportunities, and he’s making the most of them.”
Motum, a 6-foot-10 junior from Brisbane, Australia, has seen his scoring average climb from 2.9 points per game as a freshman to 7.6 as a sophomore to 17.8 this season. Motum’s playing time and shot totals also have increased significantly each year.
“I’ll put him up against any forward in the country,” Arizona coach Sean Miller said after Motum scored 28 points against the Wildcats last week.
Motum ranks second in the Pac-12 in scoring, fourth in field-goal shooting percentage (56.7) and sixth in rebounding (6.5).
“There’s very few teams that are going to have an answer for how good an offensive player he’s become,” Miller said.
